” our baby will not________”
Its incredible how time can slow down so much yet pass so quickly. A short trip to the garbage can now takes several minutes as my one year old pleads with me to grab her hands and let her walk with me there and back, yet I have never seen a year fly by like it does when watching your child grow.
It is also incredible how having a child of your own changes you. No matter how determined you are to “not let the baby run our house” or ” not let my baby go around with a dirty face” and our personal favorite pre-parenthood proclamation “we will not let our baby into our bed.”
Parenthood changes you, no matter what you think. And its the most wonderful, constant, exhausting, and fascinating gift God has ever given.
